Nice to see Palm Springs firing on all cylinders again this past weekend. Was a bit worried a couple years ago about the store closings and general lack of people on the streets, but it seems to be on the comeback trail. Only downside about increased popularity is the room rates ($200 for Caliente Tropics WTF? Gave the receptionist a twenty spot and she got my room ready by noon and upgraded to a suite. $20 goes a long way.).
Took a marijuana capsule poolside that I didn’t feel any effects of one hour into it, so took another and boy did they eventually kick in big time. Ended up that evening at this bizarro restaurant called King’s Highway in the ACE hotel complex. Tasty veggie food, 16oz cans of Red Stripe, and a blend of ‘50s and modern diner décor. Fashionista extraordinaires sashaying and parading through including an older jet blond haired, sci-fi eye makeup man/woman with gorgeous sixteen year old Parisian models in tow as the diner floor doubled as a catwalk. And great music, that of course you’d never heard of before, blasting as well.
One of the very best cities.
P.S. there is a new three story tall Marilyn statue on the main drag if you want to look up her dress. “Is this the line to take pictures?” a retarded lady said aloud to no one in particular. She was actually retarded, so it made it okay.
P.S.S. Bought a PS tank top, the preferred article of clothing there when clothing is required, and a dead scorpion embedded lollipop.
